* With the exception of Senior “B” Hurling, the top team in each group goes into semi-finals, and the second and third team play off in two quarter-finals. In Senior “B” Hurling, the top four teams meet in two semi-finals. There is relegation play offs between the bottom team in his group, and the bottom two in senior “B” hurling. Seeding applied in all championships except senior “B” hurling with last year' finalists, semi-finalists and quarter-finalists in opposite groups. The clubs play the ones in their own group and they don't criss-cross like last year.
